Meet Your Vegetables demonstrations are led by market nutrition interns and feature healthy, easy and seasonal recipes for customers to sample raw, often underutilized vegetables. Stop by their booth June through August to taste a delicious sample and get a recipe to take home! In 2016, our interns created and handed out over 3,465 healthy samples and recipes to market customers!
This experience was ver unique for me, as I felt very connected to the food and the recipes we created, which is not something that is emphasized in many nutrition classes.
